Two people have been arrested in connection with the murder of a 67-year-old grandmother, one of them her granddaughter, in KwaMashu in Durban.

KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson, Lieutenant-Colonel Thulani Zwane says an intensive investigation was conducted by detectives after she was brutally killed in June this year.

He says their hard work yielded positive results when they arrested two suspects, including her granddaughter.

The suspects, aged 26 and 34, were arrested at the weekend at KwaMashu and Mtubatuba.

Zwane says items that were stolen were also seized during their arrest.

The suspects will appear in court on Monday on charges of murder and robbery.
